I have a jruby app that reads a file. The app is deployed on windows xp
and runs as a service.
I am able to read the file when the path is:
but when I try and read from the network drive:
I get the message: No such file or directory
The only different in the path is the drive letter.
The app runs as a windows service. I changed the service to as the
Administrator rather than the default SYSTEM, but that didn’t change
I’m using jRuby 1.5.3 and to open the file I’m using:
Are you sure that the user running the service has this drive mapped?
guess would be that the user running the service does not have the drive
mapped. Personally, I would really try to avoid mapped drives and just
file paths with the server name. Both have their pluses and minuses,
think it’s easier to debug issues with a fully qualified path.
We weren’t able to get this to work no matter what we tried. Since our
app runs as a service that service ( even when run as admin ) doesn’t
get the mapped drive.
We abandoned the idea of doing this on windows. We instead mounted the
a linux machine and run the app from there instead. Since in linux we
were able to
add the required drive permissions everything works fine now.
I know switching to linux isn’t exactly a solution for everyone I still
wanted to post
what we did to solve it just in case.
We had an issue where we couldn’t move a file from one system to a
windows shared folder (either mapped or otherwise).
I submitted a patch for this issue:
It might be related to what you are seeing. And if so hopefully will
be fixed in 1.6
